Spending and deficits in the United States are out of control. I am not afraid to get tough and will work tirelessly to correct the misguided policies that have brought us to the brink. I will rein in government spending and reduce taxes with systems that are simple, fair and pro-growth.
I want Americans to be able save throughout their working years and achieve economic security so they won't have to depend on the government in retirement.
We must give government assistance only to those who are truly in need. I am committed to keeping the promises we've made to our greatest generation, but we cannot saddle our children and grandchildren with tens of trillions of dollars of debt and taxes to pay the bill.
We must permanently balance our federal budget and reduce the growing debt that threatens us all.
